The new Protection from Harassment Act will come into effect on 27 April 2013.The new anti-harassment law will enable South Africans to approach the courts for protection from sexual harassment, including harassment via SMS or e-mail. (Image: Pixabay)Brand South Africa reporterThis year’s Freedom Day will not only mark 19 years of democracy, it will also see the new Protection from Harassment Act come into effect, enabling South Africans to approach the courts for protection from sexual harassment – including harassment via SMS or e-mail.Those hiding behind anonymity to send offensive SMSes will be able to be traced because the Act compels service providers to give the addresses and ID numbers of offenders when asked to do so by the courts.Currently, only people involved in a domestic relationship can seek recourse if they are the victims of domestic violence. They can obtain a protection order to ensure protection from the person with whom they are in a relationship.The chairman of Parliament’s portfolio committee on justice and constitutional development, Luwellyn Landers, said this left people not in a domestic relationship unprotected against harassment.“With the new law, they’ll have protection. They can approach a Magistrate’s Court and get an interim protection order, which comes into effect immediately upon being issued. Protection is immediate,” Landers said.The Protection from Harassment Act covers as many types of sexual harassment as possible because “sexual harassment comes in many forms”.“Suppose a woman was standing at a bus stop or taxi rank every day and was being pestered daily by a person, whom she didn’t even know, and who was making funny remarks,” Landers explained.“The victim of this unwanted attention can then go to a Magistrate’s Court to see the Clerk of the Court to persuade him or her that there was a case of harassment.”The clerk will assist the complainant to approach the Magistrate’s Court for an interim protection order, which will be given if the court is satisfied that there is enough substance in the complaint.In cases where the victim does not know the address of the stalker, mobile phone service providers can be approached for these details, as well as ID numbers. The Acts states they have to supply this information to the courts.“This is an order of a Court of Law which takes effect when granted. So the complainant doesn’t have to wait for it to be served and the stalker [to] sign acknowledging receipt of the document before the order comes into operation,” Landers said.“The order must be given to the person doing the stalking. The order must be served by the police, and the onus will be on the Clerk of the Court and not the complainant to see that it’s served on the person concerned.”The person on whom the interim protection order has been served will be given time to respond as to why it should not be made permanent.The complainant will also get a certified copy of the interim protection order to present to the police in case the harassment continues.It is not only victims who can appeal to the courts for help. Adults can ask the court for assistance in the case of minors whose parents fail to seek legal help. Further, people who have obtained an order against domestic violence may also apply for an interim protection order, Landers said.“This is an excellent law as it fills a gap that always existed in our law.”Source: South African Government News Agency.Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Reiterating newly-elected Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s position, new Minister of Agriculture Lawrence MacAulay said the Canadian government will uphold the Conservative party’s decision to pursue trade retaliation against the United States over its Country-of-Origin Labeling (COOL) law, according to the National Pork Producers Council.The statute requires meat to be labeled with the country where the animal from which it was derived was born, raised and harvested. It also applies to fish, shellfish, fresh and frozen fruits and vegetables and certain nuts.The World Trade Organization (WTO) has ruled that COOL discriminates against Canadian and Mexican livestock sent to the United States to be fed out and processed, violating international trade rules.“It’s not what we want to do, but if we were forced to do it, it’s something that we would likely have to do,” MacAulay said.A WTO arbitration panel now is determining the level of retaliation; Canada and Mexico have asked for a combined $3.1 billion.The WTO decision on the retaliation amount is expected to be issued Dec. 7.
Import Window vs. Media BrowserOne of the more common ways to import media into Premiere Pro is simply by using the Import command. Take a look at these P2 files when I use the import dialog box. I can see all of the MXF files nestled away in their subfolders. I can’t, however, preview any of the files or rename them. Now let’s take a look at these files in the Media Browser.To open the Media Browser, go to Window > Media Browser. Take note of the differences here when you look at the Import Window vs. the Media Browser panel. The Media Browser offers a simple way to browse, ingest, and even edit media directly in Premiere. Let’s take a look at each of these features.Browse, Preview, and ImportThe Media Browser offers features like hover scrub and filter by file type, which give you a lot of control over your browsing. You can even browse in a Premiere Project, looking through bins of the actual project. You can specify if you want Premiere to create a folder to keep your imported project nice and neat in one bin.EditWhen you select a clip in the Media Browser, it launches right in your source monitor. As with any clip, you can add in and out points and perform edits on the footage. Once you bring the footage into your timeline, Premiere will automatically add a reference file in the Project Panel.IngestYou can have the media browser ingest footage directly from a media device. As I stated before, simply importing the footage will not move the source footage anywhere. Importing is different from ingesting. When you ingest, you move the footage to a specified destination. Furthermore, when you ingest, you have four different options for how to handle the footage. They are Copy, Transcode, Create Proxy, Copy and Create Proxy. The default ingest location is Same as Project.What’s your experience with the Media Browser? Let us know in the comments. Save a time by previewing and importing files from the Premiere Pro Media Browser panel.Cover image via Shutterstock.I used to work with a lot of P2 files several years ago, and it was quite a headache. The folder structure of these MXF files is quite frustrating. Importing footage into Premiere was very counterintuitive. That’s when I discovered the Media Browser panel in Premiere Pro, which completely changed my workflow. Let’s take a closer look at the capabilities of this panel.
